I just fell in love with this book when I saw it at my school book fair last week!
Dogku has a haiku on every page, but is also a clever little story about a stray dog who finds a home. Plus, this book has so many teachable possibilities. I can read it to my first graders and then have them write their own little dog stories. I can read it to my 4th or 5th graders and then have them write their own haiku books. The text also lends itself to making inferences.
I hope you get a chance to read and share this book!
